THE ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CEMETERY 

COMMITTEE 

Year 1964 



Committee Members; 

H. Marshall Budd, Chairman 

Daniel L. Trudelle, Treasurer & Sexton 

Roscoe E. Stone 

April 21st 

A meeting of the committee with the selectmen was 
called in the town hall with Trudelle and Budd present 
of the committee. 

The following Business was transacted. 

H. Marshall Budd was to serve as chairman for the 
year, and Daniel L. Trudelle as treasurer. 

It was discovered that the sexton did not have any 
of the maps of the cemeteries of the town. The only maps 
that he has are those that he has made since he became 
sexton. 



38 

Mr. Budd was asked to inquire about the old maps 
and try and locate them. 

The committee discussed the price of lots and the 
price that should be charged for Perpetual Care, but no 
decisions were reached. 

The selectmen were asked to arrange with Robert 
Baker the owner of the property for the right of way for 
a road to the cemetery property in back of the Graniteville 
and Pine Grove Cemetery. They will call a meeting for 
the signing of the deed. 

January 26th 

The Cemetery Committee met with the selectmen 
in the town hall for the transaction of the following busi- 
ness. Present were Budd, Trudelle and Stone. 

Voted to ask the town to raise and appropriate $1,000. 
for the mowing and upkeep of the five cemeteries of the 
town of Marlborough. 

Voted to ask the town to raise and appropriate $1000. 
for the purpose of cleaning the land and bull-dozing the 
New Cemetery property in back of the Pine Grove and 
Granite Cemeteries in preparation for the sale of lots. 

After a study of the trust funds and the amounts 
available each year for perpetual care it was discovered 
that it ranges from $50 to $200. And that several lots 
do not have any perpetual care. 

It was voted to increase the price of cemetery lots 
from $35. to $100 for a four grave lot, or $200 for an eight 
grave lot. 

It was also voted to increase perpetual care for each 
cemetery lot to $200. This would make money available to 
mow the grass and care for the lots. 

Mr. Trudelle asked to cut the timber in the new 
cemetery this winter so that the brush could be piled and 
easily burned. 



39 

Mr. Trudelle asked about the old iron gates at the 
entrance of the pine grove cemetery. Mr. Budd was asked 
to see Mr. Ogilvie about selling them.

FIRE WARDS REPORT 



The Marlborough Fire Department answered 14 still 
alarms, 6 general alarms, 9 Mutual Aid calls, 3 resusci- 
tator calls, and 1 call to hunt for missing persons. We 
received Mutual Aid twice during the year. 

This year the Fire Company bought 1 stretcher for 
our emergency wagon for $47.00 and 2 more home moni- 
tors at $40.00 each. 

We wish to thank Mr. Say ward Farnum for the 
donation of $375.00 for the purchase of a new portable 
2 way radio. 

The fire wards wish to thank the members of the Fire 
Co., the Selectmen, citizens, Local Police, and the State 
Police for their fine co-operation during the past year.

We were fortunate during the past summer to 
have had Robin Beauregard with us again as playground 
supervisor. He was ably assisted by Pauline Whippie. 
Both of these local young people have strong leadership 
qualities and offer a sound program to our young people. 

During some of the winter months an indoor pro- 
gram was offered for adults under the direction of Phil 
Nelson. This proved popular with a reasonable number 
of persons and is being offered again in 1965. 

This year we gave financial assistance to the Little 
League and helped to pay the costs of transportation for 
those boys and girls who took Red Cross swimming les- 
sons. Both of these programs appear to produce very 
worthwhile results. 

We are aware of the need for toilet facilities at the 
athletic field and this needs to be planned for, but with 
present costs so high in many town departments it seems 
wise to wait as the installation and construction would 
involve considerable expense. Some work also needs to be 
done this coming year in restoring the surface of the 
field. 

The members of the Commission realize that they 
owe much to many persons for favors done in helping to 
keep the various phases of our program going. We take 
this opportunity to thank all of those who have given 
us assistance.

1964 MARLBOROUGH SUMMER PLAYGROUND 

REPORT 



Once again the program was run by Robin Beaure- 
gard ably assisted by Pauline Whippie. 

The playground ran six weeks, from July 6, through 
August 14th., open daily from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. in 
the morning and 1:00 P.M. till 3:00 P.M. in the afternoon. 

Games of high organization were again popular with 
the older group while games of low organization as well 
as quiet table games were enjoyed by the younger group. 

Tournaments were held in clock golf, checkers, chess, 
badminton and horseshoes. One day a week was spent 
at Harrisville's Sunset Beach. The last day was the high- 
light of the summer with relay races, games with prizes, 
ice cream, and in general a good time. 

The 119 registered children in 1964 was slightly 
higher then the number registered in 1963. We hope that 
this, number will again be increased in 1965. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBIN BEAUREGARD, 

7- ~ Supervisor

ANNUAL REPORT OF 
THE FROST FREE LIBRARY 



To the president and trustees of the Frost Free li- 
brary, the librarian submits the following report for the 
year October 1, 1963 to September 30th, 1964. 

The library was open 150 days and 21 days for Story 
Time. Attendance at Story Time was 333. 

Circulation of books, pamphlets and magazines: 

Adult Fiction 3081 

Adult Non-fiction 2611 

Mag. and pamphlets 1378 

Juvenile Fiction 3219 

Juvenile Non-fiction 656 



Total 10,945 

an increase of 845 

Special requests to the State Library have numbered 
120 from which we received 110 books. 

We have borrowed 2098 books from the State operat- 
ed bookmobile, of this number 817 were adult books and 
1281 were children's. 

We have loaned 581 books to the elementary school 
for class room use. 

There were 225 books added to our collection 63 of 
which were gifts. 

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR 

Our library was hostess to a Region meeting of the 
New Hampshire Library Association. This was an all day 
meeting at which time the State Library Program was 
explained by Mrs. Mildred McKay, State Librarian. The 



55 

luncheon speaker Mr. Gaines, a representative of the Na- 
tional Library Association gave an informative talk on 
censorship. 

Your librarian was asked to serve on a panel at the 
Regional Meeting of Superintendents and Principals at 
which time the topic of discussion was Public Library 
and School Cooperation. In our town we have had very 
rewarding experiences and it was my pleasure to share 
them with others, so interested. 

Our library was hostess to a regional New Hampshire 
Library Trustees Association meeting. Your librarian par- 
ticipated in this meeting at the request of the State 
Library to pose as a member of a mock council. The 
Council will be a very important working part of the 
State Wide Library Program. Mr. Allen also explained 
how the Federal Aid money would be used to start the 
State Wide program since our State Legislature did not 
raise the money to impliment the program. It is hoped 
that the money will be raised at the next session. 

Your trustees and librarian were invited to attend 
a meeting in Concord to hear discussed in detail how 
the Federal Aid money to the state for building purposes 
will be spent. Other topics discussed were 'How to engage 
and work with an architect' and 'How to make plans for 
a building program.' 

For the first time in the history of our library we 
were privileged to sponsor an author tea. Miss Shirley 
Barker, N.H. author who is now serving on the State 
Library staff as library consultant, made this program 
possible. This event was the highlight of the year. 

Your librarian has shown movies, spoken and taken 
book displays to local meetings. We have been hostess for 
the Cheshire Book Group of which we are a participant. 
We also held a coffee hour for the teachers so as to discuss 
our service to the school. 

This has been a busy year for us, I am most appre- 



56 

ciative cf my most faithful assistant, Mrs. Robert Ben- 
nett. It would be most difficult for me to carry on the 
many duties as librarian without her able assistance. 
Mrs. Arthur Knight conducted Story Time again this 
year. Carol A. Symonds, Ann Grover and Cynthia Clark, 
members of the Future Teachers of America organization 
assisted. 

This program has received praise from many parents 
as well as children. We are indeed fortunate for their 
untiring interest which makes this service possible. 

To be of service is our pleasure. We are constantly 
seeking ways to give you better library service. Your 
librarian has followed the step by step planning of the 
State Wide Library Development program. The question 
foremost in my mind in accepting the program for our 
library will be, "How will our patrons benefit from this 
program?", keeping in mind potential patrons as well, 
I'm sure there are many who for various reasons do not 
use our libary. It is with great anticipation that I look 
forward to the coming year with the preliminary plan- 
ning and launching of the long talked about State Wide 
Library Program. 

I wish to take this opportunity to publicly thank 
Mrs. Howard Croteau and Mrs. Ralph Williams for their 
loyalty and dedication as trustees, for the support of 
our library in the community. Many patrons have ex- 
pressed their appreciation for the increased number of 
new books on our shelves as well as the anticipation of the 
film projector and the services it will make possible. 

August 26, 1867, the day when our library was for- 
mally given to the town as described in the Bemis History 
certainly was an all out effort on the part of the towns 
people to show their appreciation to Mr. Rufus S. Frost 
for his most generous gift to the town, Mr. and Mrs. 
Arthur Knight, chairman of the Centennial Committee 
are making plans to perpetuate the remembrance of this 
day. If the success of the summer auction is a sample 



57 

of the present day appreciation of our library we can 
look to our 100th birthday as the greatest celebration in 
our towns history. 

Our library is in dire need of space. If you follow 
the reports you will find we are a growing institution. 
Our services have increased. The circulation figures are 
on the gain dispite the fact that population figures re- 
main about the same. We have been fortunate to have 
had dedicated trustees and librarians through the years 
who have given their time to keep our collection organized 
and catalogued. One wonders how this was possible on 
the limited budget, however, the pressures of the day are 
on us we must up-date our collection in all areas. Lack 
of space has put our collection in a haphazard order thus 
cutting down our efficiency as well as the accessability of 
our collection to the patrons. 

At this time I would like to recommend that a 
thorough study be made as to the possibility of an ad- 
dition to the present library building and an ample park- 
ing lot. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CORINNE F. NASH, 

Librarian

MARLBOROUGH COMMUNITY 



Annual Report of Town and School Nurse 
January 1, 1964 through December 31, 1964 

This has been another rather quiet year as far as 
the town calls are concerned. The greatest number of calls 
have been free calls, a service for which this Association 
was originally organized, I believe. My report is a follows. 

Total number of calls 411 

Calls at $1.00 143 

Calls at $1.75 22 

Calls at 50c 106 

Calls at no charge 140 

Total collections were $118.50 leaving a balance un- 
collected of $87.00. 

In the schools work is still going on. This report will 
cover the current school year from September to the 
present date. 

Total number of children examined by school phy- 
sician (this includes all team members) 144. 

Defects found and reported to parents; 

Heartmurmer 4 Blocked nasal passage 2 

Enlarged tonsils 3 Rapid heart beat 3 

Enlarged glands 4 Excess wax in ears 11 

Inflamed gums 2 Cavities in teeth 30 

Total number of children checked by school nurse 
387 (height and weights and eye screening tests) . Defec- 
tive eyesight found and reported to parents — 19. 

* 
No epidemics have been reported here as yet except 

the usual rounds of colds, 



61 

In regard to our Stern needle testing program which 
was started last year; we hope to get our requests for per- 
mission to test the first, fourth, eighth, and twelfth 
grades for the first part of February. T. B. is still killing 
many people every year. We hope for your cooperation 
to keep it in check in this area. This program will assure 
you that your child will be checked for this disease at 
least four times during his school life. Good insurance 
against it, we feel. I thank you for your cooperation in this 
past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARGARET A. FORD, R.N.,

REPORT OF PLANNING BOARD 



The Planning Board voted to meet the third Monday 
of each month at 7:30 P.M. in the Municipal Building. We 
met more frequently, depending on the need, except 
July and August. We voted to notify the Selectmen of any 
recommendations growing out of our discussion and 
studies. 

During the year we acted as a steering committee 
for the Walter E. Buckminster Testimonial, in which the 
entire community participated successfully. We also, be- 
cause of lack of Town voted funds, acted as a steering 
committee for the Town Christmas decorating plans. This 
also, was a successful venture, considering the short time 
element that was involved. Here, again, the civic groups 
and individuals, particularly our young people are to 
be complimented for their fine efforts. Alden Beauregard 
has carried the full responsibilty of this task many years 
and marvelously so. He provided invaluable knowledge, 
guidance, and labor to this year's effort. We appreciate 
the good news coverage that the Town received in both 
of these outstanding projects. We hope the community 
spirit and pride aroused will prevail and bring forth great- 
er achievements another year. 

Continued work and study is in process for recrea- 
tional facilities to be developed on certain Town pro- 
perties. Part of this study pertains to eliminating pollu- 
tion from brooks and the river in the Township, also pre- 
servation of our natural resources. It is hoped that the 
State Department of Economic Resources and Develop- 
ment will provide greater help in this than they have 
to date. We are still awaiting an aerial map of this area 
from the State. The desire for an Old Home Day has been 
shown. In conjunction with this, a representative from the 



64 

Grange and the Board went over the Picnic Grove as 
a possible site, once some areas have been cleared. The 
Board has also walked over and observed some other 
Town properties in the overall study, also has studied ad- 
ditional water supply sites. 

Under consideration is a program for promoting 
the Town, its people, services offered, and facilities. We 
propose a brochure be developed which can be given out 
in our Town, Monadnock Regional Association office, and 
various State promotional booths located in other states. 

The Planning Board has completed work in providing 
the Lions Club with an approved list of all street and 
road names of the town. As soon as the signs have been 
received they will be erected. This gift will benefit the 
entire community, and our thanks go to the Monadnock 
Lions Club in this continued project. 

The Planning Board makes the following recommen- 
dations, to provide a more efficient, beautiful, and pleas- 
ant community: 

1. A tree replacement program. 

2. Development of certain Town properties for rec- 
reation, as picnicing, camping, sports, or just enjoying 
natural beauty, of which we have an abundance. 

3. Clean-up Week, Spring and Fall. 

4. An indexed file be established, to include; 1) 
accurate detailed description of each parcel of property 
and assessed value thereof. 2) Upon issuance of required 
building permits, a copy thereof be placed with the appro- 
priate file card. 3) Pertinent water department informa- 
tion. 4) Poll and Head tax cards. 

5. An office of Building Inspector be established 
and a person appointed to the office. This officer to issue 
building and remodelling permits. 

6. Enforcement of Article 5, Section 5 of existing 
ordinance by Board of Selectmen. 



65 

7. Closer adherence to present ordinances on the 
part of citizens of their own volition.

MARLBOROUGH HISTORICAL SOCIETY 



The need for a local historical society has been pre- 
valent for several years. A great deal of interest was 
stimulated by the 1962 National Library Week Committee 
under the chairmanship of Mr. Bernard Silk. They ar- 
ranged a display of articles at the library of local his- 
torical significance. Since that time citizens have been 
asking, "What will become of those articles displayed?" 
Likewise, the owners of these articles have been asking, 
"To whom shall I give these articles that so aptly depict 
the history of our town?" 

Feeling somewhat responsible I asked Mr. Laurence 
Conant, chairman of the 1963 National Library Week 
Committee to include a program of historical interest so 
that we might explore the possibilities of organizing a 
local society. At this time, I took the responsibility of 
appointing Mr. Oscar Croteau to preside as temporary 
chairman. Mr. Croteau asked Mr. Robert Bennett to assist 



66 

him. There were no formal meetings until April 1964. 
However, during this interval, Mr. Croteau and Mr. Ben- 
nett, organized and made ready a tape recording of local 
history to be used at a meeting with the citizens to discuss 
the aims and purposes of a local society. This meeting 
was held June 4th, 1964. The following citizens were 
present and spoke favorably of forming a local historical 
society: 

Rev. Marshall Budd, Mrs. Inez Mahon, Mrs. Mary 
Whitney, Mrs. Alice Bullock, Mrs. Mabelle Page, Mrs. 
Helena Croteau, Miss Joan Beaudoin, Mr. Alden Beaure- 
gard, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bennett, Mrs. Corinne F. Nash, 
Mr. and Mrs. Norman Collins, Mr. and Mrs. Robert 
Sawyer, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Porter, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph 
Pierce, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Richardson Jr., Mr. John E. 
Lougee, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Flint, Mr. Oscar Croteau, 
Mrs. Alfred Beauregard. 

The tape entitled 'PEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS' was 
played, consisting of conversations by Mr. Oscar Croteau 
with Mr. Harry Bemis, Mr. Charles B. Knight, Mrs. Carrie 
Clark and Mr. and Mrs, Ernest Flint, pertaining to old 
families and interesting events in our town's history. 

The official charter was recorded with the State Sept. 
25, 1964. The aims and purposes of the society are: 

1. To promote interest, present and future in the 
historical and cultural background so richly inherited 
from our early settlers. 

2. To collect and preserve all articles, papers and 
special gifts of historical importance. 

3. To develop within our township, a fellowship that 
will endure through a better future, resulting from a 
more thorough understanding of the past. 

Meetings will be held the fourth Tuesday of each 
month unless other wisee voted. Notice as to place and 
program will be posted in the Sentinel. Membership dues 
— $1.00 single — $1.50 for a couple.

REPORT OF PRINCE PAL OF 



To Roger L. Sundstrom, Superintendent of Schools: 

Following is a report similar to the ones which it 
has been customary to submit covering school activity 
for the preceding twelve months. I shall attempt to be 
brief and to stress only the major phases of school life. 
Citizens tell me that this type of report is enlightening 
to them. I shall first show an enrollment table comparing 
the present year with the last one.

Since September we have enrolled a total of 16 pupils 
in all grades and 14 pupils have left our schools. A look 
at the present totals shows little real change but census 
figures indicate higher enrollments as new pupils enter 
school and move up through the grades. Our buildings 
are now adequate in space to accommodate the programs 
being offered with some room for increased numbers. 

Personnel Changes 

There are two new teachers working in the elemen- 
tary grades. Mrs. Gail Maynard, a 1964 graduate of the 
elementary training program at the University of New 
Hampshire, replaced Mrs. Churchill and Mrs. Mary Mur- 
ray was hired as an additional teacher to reduce the size 
of some of the larger grades. We now have no elementary 
teacher working with more than thirty pupils and most 
have twenty-five or fewer. In grades 1-6 there are six 
straight grades and three combination rooms. 

In grades seven through twelve there were three 
teacher replacements and one additional teacher hired. 
Miss Donna Cimics, Keene State College '64, replaced 
Mrs. Betty DiGiulio. Mrs. Helen Jewett, an experienced 
University of Vermont graduate, took the position left va- 
cant by the resignation of Lewis Major and Mrs. Winni- 
fred Seaver succeeded Mrs. Astrid DiMeco. Mrs. Seaver is 
a graduate of Bates College and has several years teach- 
ing experience. Richard Collins, a 1964 graduate of Keene 
State College, was hired as an additional teacher to en- 
able us to offer some more courses. 

We have a competent staff which will compare favor- 
ably with similar groups anywhere. The teachers are in- 
terested in activities of the pupils and in general give 
freely of their time to assist in directing them. 

There have been no major changes among other 
employees with health service, lunchroom workers and 
office staff remaining the same. A minor change in the 



92 

custodial force occurred with the hiring of John Lovering, 
a senior, to assist with the cleaning in the afternoon. 

Program and Curriculum 

As stated in my most recently published report, we 
are constantly making adjustments in our curriculum to 
meet changing needs and to be compatible with standards 
set by our state department. This year saw further ex- 
pansion in the areas of mathematics, science and social 
studies. We continue to offer a total program which 
satisfies the requirements for certification as a compre- 
hensive school. 

Some of the additions to our offerings are intended to 
increase the learning opportunities of the non-college 
bound student. It should be emphasized again, however, 
that the high school is an educational area intended to 
provide general knowledge and is not expected to give a 
terminal type of education where no further training is 
required to produce skilled craftsmen. 

The construction of new space during the past year 
enabled us to move a section of grade six to the high 
school building thus making room available to reduce the 
number of pupils in some of the larger grades. By the 
addition of one elementary teacher we have all grades 
within acceptable enrollment standards. 

In some areas we are working with ability grouping 
which is favorably regarded in educational circles. The 
trend is to do more and more of this type of organizing 
even to the point where some progressive systems ignore 
grade placement almost entirely and cause pupils to ad- 
vance at whatever rate they are able to move. This prac- 
tice is considered extreme by many and its adoption as a 
universal practice is far away but it is food for thought 
nevertheless. 

We are moving toward a program of Modern Math. In 
fact, some is being taught in several areas even though 
no particular program has been adopted for our school 



93 

system. The pros and cons seen in evaluation of the sev- 
eral available programs make it appear wise to proceed 
slowly before making the outlay of money necessary for 
adoption of any particular one. Meanwhile our staff mem- 
bers are taking courses and becoming familiar with the 
concepts involved. 

Our elementary program in music is showing the 
results of the efforts expended of late, particularly in the 
instrumental field. We are hoping to be able to have a 
small marching band in the not too distant future. 

The Outdoor Education program at Camp Union will 
continue this year and will be partly supported by district 
funds this year for the first time. 



Athletics 

The teams representing our school in interscholastic 
sports have done exceptionally well in all sports, the 
major achievement being the winning of a fourth con- 
secutive state championship in baseball last spring. Cur- 
rently the basketball team is enjoying a good season and 
may do well in the coming tournament. 

Equaly satisfying, however, is the increasing interest 
being shown in intra-mural sports. In this program we 
are getting a very high percentage of pupil participation. 

We need to look next to broadening this type of pro- 
gram in girls' sports as inter-school rivalry tends to be 
de-emphasized. This trend is general and more and more 
schools are not sponsoring this type of competition. 



Class of 1964 

Twenty-four students were graduated in June. Of 
these ten entered four year colleges, one went to a two 
year school, two joined the armed forces, six are gainfully 
employed, four are married and one is still at home with 
plans for future education. 



94 

The Plant 

At the time of my last report there was a request 
ready for the voters asking for more space. This plan 
was approved and construction began in mid-March to 
provide the space needed and outlined in the 1964 report. 
This space has made the operation of our program much 
easier and has increased educational opportunities exten- 
sively. Many aids to teaching have been acquired and in- 
stalled. We urge the public to visit us particularly when 
school is in session so that our program can be seen 
with students participating. 

Conclusion 

As I conclude this report I express my thanks to the 
many, many persons who have cooperated to make edu- 
cational opportunities available to our youth at all levels. 
To attempt to enumerate all individuals or groups would 
be impossible but the support which has been given us 
serves as a stimulus to all involved to continue our efforts 
with determination to do the best possible job.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT 



To the School Board and the Citizens of Marlborough: 

I hereby submit my third annual report. 

No attempt will be made here to outline in detail the 
various aspects of the educational program. The report 
of the principal will give specific information with regard 
to the status of the Marlborough schools. The intent of 
this report is to present the general scope of the enter- 
prise with the hope that this will further our under- 
standing of the school situation. 

The major business supported by the people of a 
community is its public schools. In Marlborough, this 
requires the operation of two buildings which are valued 
at $520,000.00. The outstanding indebtedness at the end 
of the current fiscal year will be $306,145.00. The district 
employs twenty-five teachers, including the principal, 
one secretary, two custodians, and two school lunch 
workers. Marlborough also contributes $19.88% of the 
supervisory union expenses. Transportation services are 
contracted for approximately forty pupils. The school 
lunch program serves an average of 130 lunches daily. 
The cost of this enterprise this year is nearly $215,000.00, 
not including an approximate additional $5,000.00 in 
school lunch collections. 

Although the School Board sets policies and directs 
the administrators within the limits of the School Laws 
of the State of New Hampshire, the ownership of this 
enterprise rests with the citizens of Marlborough. Along 
with this ownership, there is a responsibility to invest in 
the kind of education which will produce good future 
citizens. This responsibility costs money, but it is an in- 
vestment we can ill afford to ignore. For it is the purpose 
of our school system to provide such opportunities that 



96 

our young people may develop to the fuH extent of their 
ability, and become responsible, contributing citizens of 
our community, state, and nation. 

There is no question that the educational program 
in Marlborough has improved. The curriculum has been 
expanded so that there are more offerings than ever be- 
fore. New instructional methods designed to increase 
pupil understanding are used by the teachers. Up to date 
teaching and learning aids provide enrichment. The pro- 
gram has also undergone organizational changes in or- 
der to provide maximum utilization of staff and school 
plant. Such devices as homogeneous grouping, depart- 
mentalized instruction, dual-track secondary program 
of studies, and various special services have been utilized 
to meet student needs. 

Indicating that progress has been made in our educa- 
tional program does not imply that our school system has 
no areas of need. Special education for the mentally re- 
tarded, elementary school library services, and further 
expansion of the secondary school curriculum are some 
of the areas which need attention. Although much has 
been done to provide a safe and healthy environment for 
the elementary children, a tour of the facilities reveals 
many inadequacies. It is questionable as to the soundness 
of spending money required to remodel and expand facil- 
ities which have been in service as long as the elementary 
school has. Before we can intelligently decide on the 
proper solution to these and other problems, the develop- 
ment of an educational plan which will best educate 
Marlborough boys and girls at a cost which is reasonable 
must be developed and agreed upon. 

In conclusion, I again wish to thank the principal 
and teachers, pupils and parents, the School Board and 
School Planning Committee, and the patrons of our 
schools for their understanding and cooperation.

REPORT OF THE FOREST FIRE WARDEN AND 
YOUR DISTRICT CHIEF 

The 1964 forest fire season surpassed the record year of 1963 
in both length and severity. For the second successive year, we ex- 
perienced a rainfall deficiency of more than ten inches and the com- 
pounding of such drought conditions, together with the many days of 
strong, dry winds, characterized 1964 as one of the most hazardous 
years in the past half century. Although our fire season was three 
weeks longer than that of 1963, the number of fires showed only a 
slight increase and more remarkable was the fact that the area burned 
dropped from 2280 acres in 1963 to 900 acres in 1964. Earily detection 
and rapid response kept many potential fire disasters from becoming 
reality. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the men in this community 
who responded and fought our fires so efficiently. Our state is now 
86% wooded and its economy — both industrial and recreational — 
is greatly dependent on this forest resource. The responsibility for 
adequate fire protection of this great area — ' 4,350,000 acres — is 
everyone's responsibility and prevention is one of our most effective 
tools. 

Prevention is good common sense. 

1. Take your rubbish to the town dump. If you must burn, 
obtain a permit and watch your fire until it is dead out. 

2. Instruct your children in fire safety. Keep matches from young 
children. Explain to them the dangers of lighting matches 
and making outdoor fires. 

3. Be sure discarded smoking material and matches are out. 

A major portion of our perventable fires this year are chargeable 
to three causes: (1) permit fires allowed to escape; (2) children 
playing with matches; and (3) smokers. Let's be mindful of the fact 
that all such fires endanger property and lives. 

We wish to thank you for your very fine cooperation during the 
past fire season and with your continued cooperation we are con- 
fident that we can improve our fire record in 1965.
